Joel tried to escape by lying about what happened - and that's what our LA teacher focuses on because he can get some great writing out of the kids dealing with lies. I think the bigger themes here are choices, morality, and helplessness.
Pretty good quick read. It's got some kind of weird medal on the front too with a man and two kids Newberry Honor Book or something. I don't know what that is. It's probably some award they made specifically for this book to make it look good. View all 3 comments. May 02, Ninja rated it it was ok Shelves: books-from-school. I was read this book when I was in the fifth grade and when the teacher got done reading, I thought there was more to this book, so I checked it out at my school's media center, BUT NOPE!
There is nothing else to this book. Now, the only thing saving this from getting the dreaded 1 star review is I like how it's written. It's pretty well written for elementary school students, but not quite for an 18 year old girl who read the book years ago.
Overall, Book pissed me off, Great for elementary school students. Pick it up for someone with an elementary school student and don't read this if you don't wanna get pissed off.

The book talks about 2 friends, Joel and Tony. Tony is the dare devil throughout the whole story and I guess that's why the tragic event happens.

Marion Bauer certainly followed in the tradition of great novels. On My Honor is set in the hot summer of a small city. It explores the stress we put on ourselves to express blame and feel guilt when blamed. The biggest heartache is when you blame yourself for things that could not be prevented, or were not your fault. That is what Joel did. The setting was the Vermillion. Tony called it Old Man River, which is a nickname for the Mississippi. It was polluted with chemicals and sewage that were invisible.
The main characters were Joel and Tony. They were born three weeks apart and had been neighbors and friends all their lives. Joel was cautious but still adventurous. He was reliable and trustworthy. He was also a good swimmer. Tony was more of a risk taker. Always up for an adventure without bringing to mind the consequences of his actions.
Bauer also related to the importance of blame and guilt associated with blame in life. Bauer showed this when Joel put blame on his dad. She also showed it by the way the father dealt with Joel after Joel hit him and ran off.
His father was very supportive. He took the blame to help his son deal with it. The strengths of this novel were that it had a good plot, an excellent theme, and it demonstrated the family roles. It showed how the father was supportive and understanding. Should any young man promise to observe certain standards of dress or hair length or behavior and then evade those restrictions, certainly his error is deep-seated and is not just a difference of opinion.
It is nothing to joke about, but a black mark on his character. Please note that I have used the word covenant regarding the promises you made when registering at the university. I realize that you may not agree fully with our code for dress and behavior. Perhaps you do not agree with it at all. Please do not misunderstand. We have provided this school so that it may be enjoyed.
We are delighted you are here. But please remember that there is no compulsion for you to come and you have done so voluntarily. The terms under which you have registered are definite and firm.
There is no forum for argument or appeal about the personal standards we expect you to maintain. We have every confidence that you will. We realize that there are many other universities in the land, some of which have far less stringent regulations. Since I cannot agree and since I do not intend to live the rules, therefore, I will not pledge something that I will not do. I will not enroll.
I will not sign to do one thing and then do another. Sister Kimball and I have eaten at restaurants where it was required of the men to wear a coat and tie. But I promise you I would not bolt through the door tieless and demand to be served. Furthermore, and far more seriously, I would not put on a tie at the door, find myself pleasantly and courteously seated, only then to tear off my tie and coat and defy the waiter to eject me.
Why would I not do such a thing? Because my honor and my dignity and my integrity are more important to me than any meal, however splendid the banquet. I invite you to exercise your integrity in the same way on this campus, in dress, in dignity, in manners and morals.
These have been clearly stated and by these you are honor bound to abide. Your integrity and my integrity require it. Obviously, what we say to you here applies to Latter-day Saint students wherever they are, at home and abroad, as well as our faculty, staff, and administrators. I ask you to keep your promises, to be faithful to your covenants, to live by your standards, and to represent what the sacred tithing dollars invested in this school must always represent.
